Frito Corn Salad

Today is National Corn Chip Day, so here I am with a recipe featuring corn chips!

This is an excellent side dish.  I served it alongside taco salads, so it was great as a side OR a salad topping - so delish!

The salad is a mayonnaise-based corn salad with a few other veggies and great spices…then just before serving, chili cheese frito corn chips are added to add crunch and even more flavor!  It’s a crowd pleaser for sure.

-I used frozen corn (thawed) in this recipe, canned corn is also an option

-This makes quite a small batch, double for a crowd

  1. This sounds like a perfect side for my next Fiesta

  2. I often add chips to a sandwich for extra crunch so I know I would love the chili cheese Fritos added to a salad. Great idea, Amy!

  3. With my 3 favourites, cheese, corn and corn chips this salad is a winner. Must try it.

  4. This looks delicious, Amy. I can't wait to try it!

  5. I love this salad. I can sit and eat the whole dang thing -- but of course I don't -- however, I could! :)

  6. I'd love this as a side at a bbq.
